Sinangag or Sinangag na Kanin pertains to garlic fried rice. It is a simple version of fried rice wherein crushed garlic is cooked with leftover rice. This is a favorite among Filipinos. Sinangag is usually consumed for breakfast using the previous night’s leftover rice. It is best eaten with fried food such as fish and meat.
I grew-up eating sinangag for breakfast almost everyday. My grandmother likes to eat fish a lot. She always fries dried fish for breakfast. The likes of daing and tuyo can be found on our dining table on a daily basis during breakfast time. These fried salted dried fish are best paired with garlic fried rice, fried egg, and spicy vinegar as a dipping sauce.
Tapsilog (beef tapa, sinangag, at itlog), longsilog, Tocilog, bangsilog, and all of the silogs that you can name have garlic fried rice as a component of the meal.
